Belgian IPTV provider Belgacom TV added 250,000 new customers since January 2008, representing an increase of 45 percent over 2007. The subscriber increase was driven by the implementation of an end-to-end IPTV platform from Nokia Siemens Networks that introduced HDTV, VOD, PVR and interactive services for both new and existing Belgacom TV subscribers.

In less than four years, Belgacom has captured a 30 percent share of Belgium’s digital TV market. In March 2009, the total number of Belgacom TV users reached 555,000.

Nokia Siemens’ IPTV platform is designed to provide an intuitive user interface with advanced features. Belgacom also uses Nokia Siemens’ Infopages feature to create Web-like interactive applications including a VOD catalog, online shopping and instant voting.

Nokia Siemens has also integrated Cisco’s HD IPTV set-tops to support HDTV, PVR and VOD at the end-user premises.
